The Fringe Festival is July 5 – 16th, 2017

Volunteer for the Fringe

95,000 Festival Attendees Make for Packed Houses

Theatre lovers, arts fans and Fringe enthusiasts — join us July 5 – July 16th, 2017 for another fun-filled year at the Toronto Fringe Festival, featuring new plays, old favourites, experimental works and a brand new Fringe Club!

This year we continue programming at our regular partner venues. We also have two Fringe Clubs: our FringeKids! Club is back at the George Ignatieff Theatre, or if our big kids Fringe Club (also known as our beer tent) is more your style, never fear, we’ll be at our new home at the Scadding Court Community Centre, featuring delicious eats and, of course, beer.  And we’d love to have your help!

During the festival volunteers sell/tear tickets, usher, and help out with special events, among many other things. For every shift you volunteer you’ll receive a stamp on your volunteer pass to see a show for free! One shift = one stamp. You’ll also be able to attend volunteer appreciation shows, receive a Fringe t-shirt and get community service hours!

Official sign-up now open! Click here to sign up:
